    Had one cat with an abcess across the top of her skull below the skin. Every day we had to pull out the packing (abt 2 inched), clean out the would (it was like a short tunnel), flush it, apply antiseptic and then re-pack it. Took two of us to hold her with the towel wrap but it was a lot cheaper than going to a vet every day…

    hahah @husky51 I had the same experience with a cat who had an abscess on his ear. I put him in a pillow case, wrapped a towel around the pillow case, wrapped a blanket around that, and held him down with my leg. I still got the crap scratched out of me.

    My 18 year old cat, Mud, has finally taken well to getting her talons hacked. We tried the towel, but that ended up in a whole bunch of snags that would make Peekaboo (“Rose is Rose”) look like an amateur. Now, I hold her while someone else clips her nails. Funny part, she will twist around and shove her head into my armpit so she does not have to look at what’s going one, all the while mewing pitifully (“Mom, I know you are not trying to hurt me, I know it will be over soon, I still don’t like it.”). Extra kitty treats and 15 minutes with the slicker brush (she loves being groomed) and all is over and forgiven. Until the next time.

    I love the smug look on Biscuit’s face in the first frame.

    Try stuffing the cat head first into a sweatshirt sleeve. Works for me….of course, my cat is deathly afraid of sweatshirts…..

    At this point it’s time to show buiscuit who her masters and owners!!!! No food and no water until biscuit cooperates should do the trick, as well as an electric shock training collar!!

    You don’t seem to be a dog lover.

    Flip the dog upside down, become the alpha, seems to help with my pooch. She goes limp after about 3 seconds of on my lap tummy to the air. I can shave her paws (she’s a poodle) clip nails, and brush her so much better.

    I used to wrap my pooch in a towel, and it worked.

    Our smallest, sweetest cat gets mattes in her long beautiful hair


    It takes two of us to brush them out and at least one of us gets clawed up in the process

    Let me put it this way: If you can’t control or train an animal, you have no legal right to own it as a pet! There needs to be stricter state and federal legislation passed regarding the liability of dog owners whose dogs bite or even startle people who pass by their property on a public street! Anyone who wants to own a dog should be required to pass a professional dog trainers class before they even get a permit to own the dog! Second, professional breeders should be required by law to register every puppy they have or give away! The bottom line would be this: NO PROFESSIONAL DOG HANDLERS LICENSE FOR OWNERSHIP; NO DOG!!!!….NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!!!!!!
